Topic: Windows driver for OctaMic XTC
The OctaMic XTC can now be used as audio interface with 24 channels input and output under Windows, both WDM and ASIO. Driver and firmware are available on our website or here:
So far the OctaMic XTC could be used as Class Compliant interface with the iPad (a perfect, universal front-end for it). As Mac OS X includes full support for CC devices it is also possible to use it as audio interface with up to 24 channels I/O on a Mac. Lacking UAC 2 support in Windows requires to write a CC driver - which we now did.
Firmware 47 adds some more Alternate Settings for better multichannel support at higher sample rates and RME-like ASIO performance, and driver 0.9573 adds the OctaMic XTC with WDM devices, full WDM configuration (stereo, multi-channel and speaker) as well as ASIO buffer size settings. The XTC can now be used without an additional audio interface as multi-capable I/O unit on any working desk, directly via USB, even with Windows.
Please note that there is no TotalMix FX support, and will never be.
